Yay, Christmas break is perfect for brickfilming.
Excellent concept, excellent lines. I predict the most used line to be “It wasn’t supposed to explode that much.”
The voting system seems to be really easy, too.

Why? WMM can create the same AVI needed to make Real Media or Quicktime formats as other editors. Real can be created for free and is multi-platform where WMV files are limited to Win users.

WMV files can be seen on other comp brands, as long as you have Windows Media Player (I know this applies to Macintoshes. Not sure about other platforms). I just filmed a test to see if I could encode using RealAnime, and I couldn’t find my encoded file. It was able to encode it, I just don’t know where it’s stored.November 28, 2005 at 2:11 am #147365

In the Input/Output Section, there is a little box that say “Destination.” Find that place on your computer, and you should find you film. Next time, to make things a little simpler, make your destination in some sort of Folder, or better yet, on your desktop.

I encoded the film and it converted to a MKV file. What program is used to play those?November 28, 2005 at 3:44 am #147385

This has been discussed before; the latest version of real anime no longer has the real codec in it sadly, therefore it coverts it to a matroska video file which you must download a codec for ( http://www.matroska.org/ ). I personally like the file format alot; it allows for subtitle and language tracks while playing within another media player like windows media. Very handy though it hasn’t caught on much yet.
Back to the contest…
Just wondering but are there any restricitions on length (minimum or maximum)?November 28, 2005 at 3:55 am #147387

With the time allotted for filmmaking and the general feel of the contest, I’m expecting films to be in the 3-5 minute range. But who knows what we’ll see.November 28, 2005 at 5:35 am #147405

To my knowledge, Windows Media Player is available on no platforms other than Windows and Mac.November 28, 2005 at 7:02 am #147415
Is there anyway the deadline could be moved back by like 7 days because of te way my school holidays work? If so I’m in.November 28, 2005 at 7:16 am #147416
Actually, yes, I probably should push it back a week or so. That should line up better with some people’s holidays.
